BINGO COMMITTEE: Come out and play!! And thank you to the ladies who have stepped
up to join a team or to help out as needed!!! We need a lady to work Early Bingo on the front
cash register from 2:00 pm to 3:45 pm in the March/June/Sept/Dec rotation. We always are in
need of ladies to help out or to substitute occasionally! The 3 rotations are for 1 month/4
times per year for our Bingo sessions every Tuesday at 3:45 and 5:45. We will teach you and
mentor you along the way. If you’d like to help the hours are 2:00 to 3:45pm for the early bingo
or 5-9pm for late bingo. It’s easy and lots of fun to help – so contact Elsie, Marianne or
any of the Bingo crew if you’d like to join us. Remember, this is our biggest fundraiser and
we need the membership to support this effort!! These Bingo sessions are opened to the
public (they just have to sign in) – so invite all your friends!

 

LOE Name Badges: Continue to wear your badge at all events and at meetings. If you forget
there will be a fine jar at the General Meetings!! 25 cents!!
Linda Tank, Secretary

kept us 'up to date financially' my Financial Secretary, Pat Smith who has been a huge help and my

all the new officers: Pam Stimmell, President, Maureen Edwards, Vice President, Linda Tank, Secretary,
Laura Matheny, Financial Secretary and Judy Bebout, Sgt-at-Arms. Also all the ladies who

Touch of Home: We sent a shipment to Ron & Sue James’ grandson. Thanks go out to the LOE, the Quilt Guild and Rolling Elks who made the 370 dozen cookies we sent!! If you know of a service man or woman who will be deployed in the fall let Marianne know as we would like to plan our next shipment for October.

Our ladies of Elks mailed 12 packages to Jane & Gary Hensen’s son-in-law, Nick, who is deployed to the Middle East. It took less than a week for them to arrive. His troops really appreciated receiving the 366 dozen cookies and items from their wish list. They had requested headlamps and they’re wearing them while eating cookies in the pictures they sent. It’s fun to know that they are enjoying the cookies and all of the goodies . We thank them for their service We thank all of you who donated cookies, those who helped shop and those who helped with the packing and mailing
